Greetings Friends,
I just put the last copy of "Midwest Meanderings" in the mail; however, I am assured by the Queen Bee at Zander Press that I can have more copies made - as many as I want.  How many do I want?  As many as it takes to meet the demands of you, the readers.  Many of you already have one or more copies, and perhaps you have wished you had one or two more for a gift to some deserving soul.  The book never made the New York Times "Best Sellers" list, (but it should have) and it is not available on Amazon.  If you want one you can get one from me.   I have the latest pricing information and for $20 (personal checks OK, no credit cards) I can deliver one to your mailbox.  If you live in Canada, I will have to smuggle one in, but I visit every year.  Price includes an insulated mailing pouch, postage, and the book.

Books may be ordered by e-mail to  or by phone: 920-756-3919 (land line) or 920-860-4193 (Cell).  Personal checks payable to Frenchy Corbeille will be accepted as payment, mail to:
 R. Claude Corbeille                                                                                                                   
446 Ridgeway Drive                                                                                                                     Brillion, WI 54110

The three years include 2012, 2013, and 2014 and all of my weekly "Glimpses of Brillion" are included, along with scintillating tales of hunts and travels, including travel over the Dempster Highway to the shores of the Arctic Ocean.  The cover photos are provided by Brillion's own professional photographer and my friend Dave Andre. The front cover depicts the four seasons in my part of the world, starting with trumpeter swans for winter and clockwise to redwing blackbirds for autumn.  The back cover (not shown) includes photos of Dave's favorites.

The book is purely non fiction, more of a coffee table book than a cover-to-cover narrative, and all of the words and opinions are mine.  Any errors can be attributed to me, but also all of the good stuff.
If you will be wanting one or more, please let me know and I will tally the number of requests prior to putting my printing order in
